Sara Smile

28 03 2010

Remember the 70s? For me the whole idea of that era smells like the inside of school buses and Bonne Bell Bubble Gum Lip Smackers and Love’s Baby Soft and Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific and wears satin baseball jackets. (I just showed my age card—ugh.) One of the sweetest love songs at the time was “Sara Smile,” which has been recently redone by The Bird and the Bee.

I wrote this while hearing that song and decided that Harper needs to smile. (“Won’t you smile awhile for me, Sara?”) She sure smiles wearing this outfit from monica Outlander. Putting together two separates from her brand spankin’ new store (a building collaboration between monica and Valeries Muircastle), I pair this well drawn tank top with funky harem pants. One thing monica is willing to do is take risks with her fashion, and she succeeds, pairing slim with full, wild with sedate. I look forward to seeing what monica intends to do in her other store—she said it will be avant garde and pret a porter.

Atop my head is another brilliant hit by Lamb Bellic. I think I am becoming a 50L Friday junkie based on Lamb’s hair alone. Her offering is often the most anticipated item for me and always a pleasure. I especially like the platinum blonde of this color. I don’t do blonde often or happily. Yet this one makes me smile.

Finally, LeeZu Baxter and Enktan Gully have teamed up again, this time to make a platform pump for the best fashionistas. With the textured fringy ankle and the high curvy sole and heel, these shoes are funky and fierce all at once and fully in keeping with the LeeZu vision.

When you feel cold, I’ll warm you
And when you feel you can’t go on, I’ll come and hold you
It’s you and me…. forever

Hey, Red!

23 12 2009

It’s interesting. You walk into this world. You have to make a “self.” When I first walked into SL, it was clear to me that I would have to have red hair. I am not sure what decided this for me so distinctly, but there you go—I had to be a redhead.

I have since diverged from this, of course. I have even worn blonde hair, which was a huge step for me personally. (Nothing against blondes. I just never saw myself as having light hair. I can’t explain it.) And I always go for the easy choice in clothes—red. (Which looks good on me in RL too.) So today, I went the easy route and chose red.

Hey, Red!

I found this dress at a store on a new sim called Period. The creator, Memai Avon, presented a number of great separates—skirts, tops, tights, leggings. Nothing was outre or niche. She offered simple, inexpensive separates that could serve in many circumstances. I purchased this pretty dress with it’s red rose motif. My shopping partner and I agreed that the flat black through the dress was kind of a cheat (black hides a lot of mistakes and problems), but the dress was reasonably priced and looks great worn, and she has a lot of other great pieces that show quite a bit of skill.

Hey, Red!

At the same mall we found some spectacular hair by Ilze Erin. Offering several styles that frame the face in a most complimentary fashion, her store deserves attention and I hope we see more from her. I dressed up this ensemble with jewelry from DarionMonkee Levitt. It’s really cute stuff made by a person who clearly has incredible patience.

Hey, Red!

And check out these shoes. Red straps, red nails—*click click* and I have them on these sexy sandals from Maris Kanto. Maris is a scripter extraordinaire (or knows one) because these shoes have a great hud for adjusting skin tone (a notch at a time so you can SEE what it will look like), nails, and hardware and size. Add to that the fun of shopping at Kalnins—regular shoppers get discounts and points based on the scripts used in the vendors. It’s all about the experience, from shopping to wearing.

Hey, Red!
